All fans for cooling cpu plug into a small 2 or 3 pin socket usually white on the motherboard near to the heatsink your fan should have the lead coming from it
fans for video card sometimes takes the power from card or connect to board same as cpu fan but near video card

Dell Studio xps 8100: Motherboard changed, when booting up I get to the f2/f12 screen with have a progress bar and computer turns off?


So picture guy, LOL

Most all boards have two power plugs from PSU, (power supply unit)
a 20 or 24pin and a 4 or 8pin.

The rest from PSU are for hardware, except if you have any video cards in pci-e slots, but they are not truly part of the motherboard they are addon.

Then from the case you have power button, reset, pled,hdled.

Sata ports on mobo, cpu fan, addon fans, DVD rom.

Front panel audio.

So now you have taken one memory stick and entered the BIOS, then tried each one.

You need to check each stick.


Now you put in your hdd erase disk, boot from it and you're going to erase your hdd so it's all clean for a fresh install.

Now you throw in the windows disk and you boot from it to install windows.

Right !!!

Dell inspiron n 4010 hangs often


I suggest you open the laptop, and clean it out first. THEN go on with the diagnoses.

Dell Support > Inspiron n4010 Notebook PC > Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/insN4010/en/sm/index.htm

1) FIRST remove all power. Remove the AC adapter (Charger) and Battery.

2) FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit), the delicate hardware components on a computer.

Relieve your body of Static.

You should use an ESD wrist strap, and connect it's alligator clip to a good ground source.
This is an example of an ESD wrist strap,

This pictorial guide for disassembly of an Inspiron n5010, should help also.

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/taking-apart-dell-inspiron-n5010-inspiron-15r-laptop/comment-page-1/#comments

The screws, and cables, etc., are in a different place, but disassembly is still the same.

Use a can, or two, of compressed air for computers.
Also you may wish to use Q-tips, and a soft small brush.
(Makeup brush? )

DO NOT use a vacuum!!!!

A vacuum creates Static electricity.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

How can I tell if the fan is bad or if it it not being truned on? Dell Inspiron 1501


On a laptop this can be a slightly annoying thing. The fans are normally set to run only when needed so will not be working all the time. If your laptop is warm/hot then you should be able to feel some air movement from the exhaust vent. That will tell you if the fan is working. Use it for a while and then start checking around the sides for any warm air coming out. The fan itself might be quiet but you can feel the warm air.

You can also turn the cooling setting to max cooling through the power panel. That should force the fan to run all the time.

If the fan is running but you can't feel any airflow then the cooling system/vents may be plugged with dust or lint and need to be cleaned. Most computer shops will offer a flat fee to clean this. Usually the service depot will as well. If this is the case you really don;t want to run the laptop until you get it cleaned. Without the airflow the cpu will overheat. At best it runs slow and at worst it burns out.

Window shut down when scanning.


That is mainly caused by your laptop CPU heat too hot. Just clean the CPU fan and dip some lubricant oil into the CPU fan. Then buy a laptop cooling stand.

Dell Inspiron 1525 shuts down


You have had Win 7 for TWO YEARS? Hmmmm well anyway thats the problem. You see Win 7 and games don't MIX, the only way may help is to run in compatibility mode for XP SP2, and Run & Install as Administrator.

Need drivers to run windows 98se on dell xps m140


Microsoft (and Dell) stopped supporting Windows 98 a few years ago -- it lasted for over TEN years! So, it is *NOT* likely that you will find drivers for any computer that was "designed for Windows 2000" or "designed for Windows XP" or "designed for Vista".

So, in general, it is a _bad_ idea to connect any computer running Windows 98 to the Internet -- Microsoft has issued many "security-fixes" in the 4 years after they stopped supporting Windows 98 and Windows ME.

Dell inspiron 8100 drivers


your audio driver is not helpful for sound card which is you install on your pc.
plaese change this driver.
all windows have different driver for different devices.
so you install the driver compatible with window vista and sound card.
